I'm back!  Those who know me well know that my absence from these pages has been due to my being off live-blogging the college football bowls for the past week and a half.

As you can see in the before-and-after picture above, the new refrigerator got delivered. It's taking me some time to get used to seeing that stranger in my kitchen every time I walk in the room.

The roofer came by and took a look at the damage, but hasn't gotten me an estimate yet or started the repair work.  Fortunately, the hard rains have let up, at least for a while, so there's been no more damage done.

The football games ran virtually all day, from noon to midnight or beyond, and as a result I made no progress on Underworld.  I did manage to re-watch all of Season 1 of The Leftovers and Episodes 1 through 5 of Season 2 (five more episodes to go).

Regular postings will resume here soon.

It is surprising how you get accustomed to the sounds of old appliances. The sounds are like the snoring of a mate that you learn to ignore. Then a new appliance comes and it has this mysterious little grown or whistle that you have to come to terms with. I live in a cold climate. Every year, I have to replace a little electric heater in my writing studio. My new one has this windy , little jet plane taking off sound. Hope your new fridge talks to you in a kind way. I check out your blog daily before writing my own. http://morningtalkswithjohammersthemystic
